We’re almost done the renovations to this bathroom, and after that, and some other small tweaks, I will be able to stage this home and get it on MLS for sale. But here’s the “before and after” so far – Alex has finished grouting the tile, so all that’s left to do is put up a shower curtain rod and paint the walls.
Here are the “before” shots of that leaky tub surround and the work Alex did to get it properly waterproofed before he tiled it.
And here’s the “after”: the grouted surround.
We used Bone White grout, sanded, from Home Depot. (Sanded mean it’s smooth; you use narrower grout lines for a sanded grout.)
Re costs: the Gloss White subway tiles were about $ 300 at Home Depot and Alex’s labour cost for the tile alone was about $900.)But as you can see, everything was done properly and it’s beautiful.
This property will be listed soon: it’s a lovely 3 bedroom freehold townhouse in Hunt Club, close to everything. Keep an eye out if you’re in the market or contact me. I’ll put up staging photos as soon as they’re done; the homeowners are still busy getting things ready.
